What to Say When Your Child Asks: "Why?"

"But why?"

How many times as parents have we repeatedly heard this? 

My very inquisitive four year old has a lot of questions! I do my best to give her an age-appopriate response, in a language she'll understand. I'm impressed that she's intelligent and curious. I love that I can see the wheels turning and she just wants to soak up every little piece of knowledge out there. That being said, sometimes I don't seem to have an answer that will satisfy her.

However, this Parents magazine article does have a kid-friendly answer to many of the most common questions kids have. I bookmarked it so the next time I hear one that's on the list, I can refer to my little cheat sheet!
